I think the 392 is a perfect build to start with. I am salivating at getting one.
Granted there are some options I am not a fan of such as hard top (as I want only a soft top), but those are minor issues. I just worry about the mechanical stuff that I am frankly not an expert in.
Slightly off topic, but what mods are needed if a person wants to rock crawl with this? I know need is a subjective topic, so I'll throw out a specific example.
Have a 2015 JKUR. I put in a which, 3.5" lift, 35" tires and full steel skid plates. Sadly the OEM drive shaft broke, and replacing...
Sadly the sales person wasn't sure. He said he would look into it, but I am not too hopeful.
Sigh.... Most of the sales folks sadly don't know much about the jeeps they sell. Would be great if Jeep sent XX number of sales people to a Jeep Jamboree event or trained them properly, but Imma...
The ability to add to Mopar 60 axles and put them on the final price/invoice would be great.
There may be cheaper and/or better after market parts, but I suspect those will be tougher to justify on a Section 179 deduction
Supposedly one can order the 392 with a Mopar 60. Has anybody else heard this?
I’m going to ask my dealer today, but the sales person I work with frankly knows less about Jeeps than I do (and to say I’m not mechanically inclined person would be an understatement).
Thanks in advance.
Ouch. I’m so sorry to hear that man.
One fix is enough to drive a person nuts. Let alone having to fix the same issue 4 times.
Especially when all of us paid hard earned money for our Jeeps.
Plus thanks for confirming that it is the Dana 44s with LSD. I guess lucky for those who...
Apologies for not being very mechanically minded and if this is a stupid question(s).
Currently have a manual 2015 JKUR that I added a 3.5" lift kit, 35" tires & steel skid plates. Have taken it off road many times and am super happy with it so far. Knock on wood, no leaks, no...
Does this take into consideration installation of:
A. Steel skid plates
C. Rock sliders
D. Recovery gear, compressor, etc.
Thankfully I don’t have over landing gear or a fridge, etc.
Am kinda sad the ecodiesel doesn’t have the 4.10 as an option.
I can only hope for Dana 60s, but I will be more than happy if they put in the Dana 44s that are on the Gladiator Rubicon and supposedly 10mm thicker (compared to the Dana 44 on the JLU Rubicon)...
Was at the dealership yesterday testing out the 2021 Rubicon with 3.0 ecodiesel.
Had already spec-ed out exactly what I wanted and was ready to a sign on the dotted line assuming (a) good price and (b) decent trade in value.
My 2015 JKU Rubicon has definitely been on the trials some and...
Thanks to everybody for contributing to this thread.
Currently have a stick shift 2015 JKUR with 3.5” AEV lift, 35”, steel skid plates and winch.
Looking to get a new JLUR. Was leaning towards the proven v6, but the 2021 model year forces one to get the etorque with the v6. Crap...
Glad to hear you liked it so much you installed another Teraflex on your new Jeep.
I have not no issues with my AEV. It has been great on the highway and it worked fine on the trails in Utah and Colorado.
Given I am in no rush, I’m going to continue reading and researching.
Thanks for this awesome thread.
Any updates would be appreciated. Especially if u switched to the long armS
Looking to get a 2021 JLU Rubicon with auto (undecided between proven 3.6 vs 3.0 turbo diesel due to Section 168 write off) and put in a 3.5” lift with 37s so doh my research...
Thanks a bunch. Ill research both your recommendations. Plus I’ll look more into the 3.5” lift kits.
Looking to invest in a super solid one. Aka buy once and cry once.
Plan is to go with 37” (as opposed to bigger) but stick with the current Dana 4 axles on the Rubicon. And add a lift...
Thanks to folks for starting and replying to this thread. Lots of great info
Any updates or feedback on taller lift kits would be appreciated....
1. What have you installed?
2. How it has held up to rock crawling?
3. Does it drive well on the highway?
4. What do you not like about your...
